whats the best way to get subs on youtube
Groovy,Whilst the obvious is making quality content I mist admit it does sometimes feel like walking in the dark wondering whether you're getting to the right place.
I'd try and get some honest feedback from people as to how you could improve .
I get quite a few views on some of my vids & I do get some great responses via Twitter so I feel like I'm doing ok video wise but it's hard to work out exactly why I'm not getting more subs.
There are changes I'm considering but I don't know if it's me jumping the gun or do I display a little patience .
Wow thankyou Mattcommand1Groovy,
One thing I have learned is that some people are more "in tune" than others. Some have a more "agreeable" attitude than others. And some have a more conducive "mindset" than others.
Because you specifically asked for feedback, I will provide some but people should be aware, in a public forum, most people will be more "gentle" because few people want to be "negative" or "super critical". I am not directing that statement to you per se but I know other people will read my response as well.
Generally, I have a positive and optimistic attitude about most people's channels. Yours is no different. I think there are a ton of people that would be interested in your genre. I am not a fan of horror or cult but I am a fan of sci-fi movies.
But for a channel with only 10 videos so far and only launched a couple months ago, I think you are doing great.
I haven't watched your videos but some things I can immediately see. Some things you can easily correct are punctuation, capitalization, & title issues. Go look at them again carefully.
Your thumbnails are readable and not overly wordy which are good things.
However, the one thing that might "intimidate" users are your longer videos. Most of your videos are between 16-20 minutes long. You may want to try a few videos around 8-9 minutes long (so you can get double ads when you monetize) and see if more views come. I tend to think that as a new channel, you have to make it easy for people to try you out. A 20-minute video is a heavy viewer investment to make.
So, instead of doing all "10 facts", you may have to do a few shorter "5 facts" videos to give some viewers a way to try your content out.
But I think you are doing really great after 2 months. You need to give 12 months but I think after a few more months, you will gain more clarity.
I would track the amount of time viewers spend in your videos. If you are get long views, the subscribers will come. Right now, you are a young channel but when they see 30, 40, 50 videos, they will know you are "serious" and more likely to give you a subscribe.
I think any experienced YTuber will tell you subscribers come easier over time. It felt like "forever" to get to 100 subscribers but recently they are coming a bit quicker. But I also care about the views. Success seems to attract more success. If people are tweeting you how much they enjoy your videos, that is a great sign. You may want to invite/train them to leave comments.
2 months in and 43 subscribers? Jeez, I am jealous. I think I might have had 15 subscribers at most after 2 months so you are doing better than me.
I say you keep doing what you are doing and constantly tweak and improve. Your genre is huge and you need to give it a few more months before being too hard on yourself.
Just a side comment to this statement. Because I have been exposed to so many different channels that succeed despite my personal biases, interests, and inclinations, I don't like to make generalized statements of "what kinds of people are on YT or for YT". We are drawn to or react differently to different content.I have found that YouTube is mostly for the clowns and foolish type personality.
Sir, I respect your view and life experiences. In my business, I've worked on the streets to see and be exposed to certain unfortunate aspects of life and society. 15 years ago, I bought a $5,000 house in Alabama and tried to rent it out for 1-2 years. I saw a side of society I never encountered before. The neighborhood was nothing I was used to. The tenant was ultimately jailed on crack and left us a disaster to clean up. It was then and there I decided, I did not want to engage that segment of society any longer regardless of money.Well I am now 78 Yrs old. Living in NYC all my life and working for the Edison public utility company in the 60'and 70'. Most for my work was for the many circus and side-show like Hollywood and silver cup studio in long island city. I can tell you America was made great by circus, hollywood, nudity and drama stage seen. I work with a company that provided the lighting and motoring works for the shows. After the circus started dying off in the 80's due to many reasons, I became to academic public school teacher and watch the students all fall in love with drugs just to dream about the circus and clown days in they delusion. Today it all gone to drugs and media.
